My long distance gf of 3 years wants me to move out to Oregon to be with her. For reference, I live in Maryland.
Should I do it? I'm 20 years old and I live with my parents who don't even know about this girl. I feel like this is a life-changing decision and I don't want to get burned by it if things go badly.
oregon is pretty sweet, i've been there. 20 years old is young, but you can always move back if things don't work out.
Oregon is pretty awesome, especially Portland. It's also nice and quiet, lots of rain and cold weather in higher altitudes.
Also, no sales tax and they pump your gas for you.
no don't do it. she'll cheat on you or get bored of you and dump you and you'll be stuck on the other side of the country with no friends and no family. it happened to me, don't fall for the same mistake a lot of people do
NO DONT DO IT! I had a long distance GF in Indiana. we talked about getting married and being together for 4 years. when I went to go see her she ignored me most of the time, didn't bother taking off work so I was stuck at her apartment all day. rummaged through her stuff and found condoms and notes about other guys she had been fucking. drove 10 hours home in tears and never spoke to her again. all this can do is ruin your life. imagine how fucked I'd have been if I actually moved there.
And you're considering leaving everything behind to live with her?
Are you this fucking stupid? You might as well shoot yourself now because you're making the decision to commit slow and painful suicide.
Only if you don't have anything going on at home.
These days air travel is so convenient and inexpensive that if something doesn't work out it's not a huge burden to just move back.
If you do it, try to avoid getting in any debt or other legal obligations. Be ready to move back. Go visit her for some time first. Get a job there first if possible. But at min wage all this is probably damn near impossible.
I've lived in Oregon all my life, and there's no place I hate more than Eugene.
Well, besides Willamina or Carlton.
Place is dirty as shit and full of nothing but one way streets.
